Perfect Dark Heads Back to the Xbox 360 in March

Perfect Dark Heads Back to the Xbox 360 in March
Oh, I remember this little game. It was made by Rare after their success with Goldeneye. The game was good, but not up to Goldeneye‘s standard, in my opinion. Well, a port of the original Perfect Dark is coming your way, if you’ve got an Xbox 360 that is.

$15,000 1989 Collector’S Item Legend of Zelda… Plate. as in the One You Put Food on.
Millions of people around the world are starving, and will probably kill themselves for food. Wait that doesn’t make sense. You know what else doesn’t make sense? That someone out there thinks he can charge $15,000 (USD) for a plastic plate.

Colorware Brings the Black Macbook Back, but It’S Gonna Cost You
When it comes to their laptops, Apple has a bit of a sadistic side, adding neat features only to take them away soon after. For example, the Firewire port was a staple of the polycarbonate Macbooks, and then it was removed from the first Unibody 13.3″ Macbooks, only to be returned in the new 13.3″ Macbook (semi)Pros.

Can Your Psp Do This?: Donkey Kong Hockey Game & Watch has Two-Player Action

Can Your Psp Do This?: Donkey Kong Hockey Game & Watch has Two-Player Action
The ancestor of portable gaming systems is Nintendo’s Game & Watch series. And if we’re going to believe its Wikipedia entry, the “spiritual” ancestor of Game & Watch games is an LCD calculator. Portable gaming sure has come a long way since the ancient 1980s, but there are some things from its past that have yet to make their way to the present.

Rare R2-D2 Fridge for Sale: One Cool Droid
I was surfing around in search of this desktop R2-D2 mini USB can fridge that I recently read about, when I happened upon something much, much cooler than that cooler. Turns out that this awesome R2-D2 compact refrigerator was apparently made back in 2002 as a promotional prize for an Attack of the Clones contest held at 7-11 Stores in Japan.

Super Mario Rains Down Real Coins

Super Mario Rains Down Real Coins
Usually when I think of Mario’s primary currency, I think of those little gold coins (and maybe some power-packed ‘shrooms). So I was pleasantly surprised to see this arcade machine from Japan in which Mario pays out with real coins.
